The memoir covers the author’s life from childhood to present times, detailing her spiritual transformation as she sought her own personal relationship with God.
“In these challenging times, now more than ever, people need hope,” Covello said. “Many are questioning their faith and wondering about God. I’m living proof that a personal relationship with Him can transform your life.”
The book follows Covello’s life story and her faith. However, a turning point for the author was the vision of Jesus that appeared to her and the message He shared. While the story has a serious tone, it is peppered with a comical look at many of Covello’s experiences and presents a “kinder, gentler” view of God that she hopes will awaken people’s faith.

Use watercolor to capture the fresh catch of the day. Fish is a good source of protein. Youth will have fun understanding who these fish are even if we don't eat them. The fish in our oceans are so diverse: from salmon to tuna to halibut to sardines to cod to red snapper. Fish not only have interesting textures, they also have interesting colors for various reasons.
Study and paint the works of Monet. We label artists either a realist, an abstract artist, a surrealist, or an impressionist. Monet, however, was a lead in the impressionist movement. His work is very easy to recreate because there are no lines drawn in the sand, just color after color to create a suggestive scene. The interesting thing about Claude Monet, besides his name being Oscar-Claude, was that he would paint over paintings he had finished. When not pleased with a finished piece of work, he would then paint a new creation.
Just before 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20th, make yourself comfortable and click on the link you were sent to join the Zoom presentation...then sit back and watch American Vistas: From the Hudson River to Uncharted Territories.
In this lecture, ArtScapades looks at the Hudson River School, the first native art
movement in the United States. The art of the Hudson River School was strongly
nationalistic both in its proud celebration of the natural beauty of the American
landscape, and in the desire of its artists to become independent of European
schools of painting. The lives and works of the three leading Hudson River School
artists, Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, and Frederic Edwin Church will be

Lucy Wakefield is a seemingly ordinary woman who does something extraordinary in a desperate moment: she takes a baby girl from a shopping cart and raises her as her own. It’s a secret she manages to keep for over two decades—from her daughter, the babysitter who helped raise her, family, coworkers, and friends. When Lucy’s now-grown daughter Mia discovers the devastating truth of her origins, she is overwhelmed by confusion and anger and determines not to speak again to the mother who raised her. She reaches out to her birth mother for a tearful reunion, and Lucy is forced to flee to China to avoid prosecution. What follows is a ripple effect that alters the lives of many and challenges our understanding of the very meaning of motherhood.

After a wildly successful first outing back in 2020, the gaming swap meet known as ALGO is back - now with MEGA Power!
What is a swap meet, you ask? Think of it as a smaller flea market, with various tables set up for vendors to display items for sale or trade. Unlike other swap meets, this is a completely FREE event, with tables provided free of charge. In addition to being a prime location to find some amazing games, people are free to bring any items of interest, from games to strategy guides, to soundtracks, action figures, posters - anything of interest!
The biggest takeaway from events such as this is the networking potential; at ALGO, we are proud to see that many friendships were forged from gamers meeting and chatting with one another at the first event, so we are confident to see that networking magic return.
We hope you'll stop by and join us on this event for all ages; will YOU go to ALGO?
